S uzanne Mathis McQueen never imagined she would be promoting the virtues of the female hormones as a means to reach equality, well-being, and enlightenment. However, that is exactly what she is doing. McQueen’s book, 4 Seasons in 4 Weeks: Awakening the Power, Wisdom, and Beauty in Every Woman’s Nature, reveals a hidden treasure map that leads to long-forgotten core female power and wisdom.
When Suzanne was a hairdresser and day spa owner, she came to appreciate the personal stories her clients shared with her, deepening and confirming her understanding of the varied and intimate challenges of her gender. These insights prodded Suzanne to investigate more fully what it means to walk this world as a woman. Eventually, a personal journey and an awakening revealed the secrets of the feminine rhythm, introducing her to the ancient code within women and the symbolism of their daily experiences. As a lifelong entrepreneur, Suzanne owned two salons before building the first and largest day spa in Ashland, Oregon in 1996, while also co-founding a private aesthetics and skin care licensing institute.
In 2000 she received the Service Business of the Year Award. She is a past president of Women Entrepreneurs of Oregon and a former mentor for Southern Oregon Women’s Access to Credit. A certified Peace Ambassador and a trained indigenous ceremonialist for women’s circles, she is also the Keeper of a sacred healing bowl gifted to her in the Lakota Way for her water blessing bowl ceremonies and other healing work.
